The sentencing occurred Wednesday morning (July 6) in a South African courtroom. Pistorius, now known as “Blade Runner,” had previously been facing 15 years in prison, but Judge Thokozile Masipa knocked his bid down to six years, citing “substantial and compelling circumstances” surrounding the murder.
As the verdict was read, the 29-year-old appeared very stoic and emotionless.
The murder took place on Valentine’s Day in 2013 when he says he mistook the model for an intruder and shot her four times through a locked bathroom door.
Pistorius has already served one year in jail over his previously prescribed 15-year sentence. He will immediately be transferred to a prison in South Africa and will be eligible for parole in three years.
